I Veered Off Topic and a Post was Deleted

9 posts in this topic

I've been frequently this site periodically and on several occasions my posts have been edited and erased. Seems as if every time I say something that the moderators of this site disagree if disapprove of they simply erase/delete the content. Anybody else have this problem on this site?

Usually spammers, trolls and jerks receive this treatment, the mods/admins do a great job of it! I'm not suggesting you are one of the above... But it's probably likely if what you say is true?

They don't magically disappear. Your most recent post continued to veer off-topic. It was removed as off topic. The topic was not to get into a pissing match over terminology. The topic was to help someone play better golf. Your perception is far from the truth.

How is discussing what a push draw is or how it's defined off topic? It's all in the nature of discussion and some healthy debate can't hurt anybody. It's seems to be off topic only if you disagree;-) I don't get it?

It's not a debate or a disagreement. You define it one way; we define it another. Once you understood how we were using the term (and us you), there was nothing more to discuss there. Move on.

Pissing match? I was offering my uneducated opinion trying to help the poster and the convo turned into definitions of push ect, but still totally relevant to he conversation. It appears the issue is that you don't like any debate lol

Nope. That's not it. I've explained my position. We love debate. I detest wasting time, however. There has to be a point. Again, once we understand how we are each using the term, we move on.

I wasn't defining it anyway. I was offering multiple points of view. We can move on no problemo but arbitrarily deleting posts you disagree with is a bit censory

It is not arbitrary, nor was it anything with which I disagreed.

My impression of you is that you're here just to argue, particularly with @mvmac and myself. Maybe that's completely true. Maybe it's not. But it's my impression.

You're doing it in this thread, arguing in spite of (and ignoring) the reasons and answers I've already given you. So, I'm locking this thread. If you have questions in the future, send a PM. We're honest. We'll give you the reason.

http://thesandtrap.com/t/75950/lets-talk-ball-flights/ - Original thread, and a post by someone other than me which summarizes it nicely: http://thesandtrap.com/t/75950/lets-talk-ball-flights/18#post_1024331



Edit: Guess I was right. @Wangus94 is yet another @RadarNinja account, and he's also PutterKilledTheDream on GolfWRX, where you will likely find him bashing, attacking, and making up lies about this site, myself, Mike, etc.

Among the lies:

  • We teach everyone to hit up. It's not true. He asserts that hitting up leads to loss of control (which it can), but missed the many times we said we assess that on an individual basis - if the loss of control outweighs the distance gains, we look to find the sweet spot of distance/control.
  • We published his personal information. The ONLY "information" we ever published about him was his name. That's it. His name… It makes he cares so much about having his NAME attached to his posts.
  • That his posts were edited, deleted, etc. It happened on rare occasions, like this one above, where he was asked to move on and failed to do so.
  • Of course, there are plenty of lies by omission. There are the many insulting, name-calling, threatening PMs he sent. There are the multiple accounts he created. There are the lies he told as this @Wangus94 account, where he pretended not to trust in radar numbers and that he was a 16 handicap.

    • Number 10. Boise, Idaho Saturday 06/24/2017. I played Quail Hollow golf Club, white tees 5727 yards. This is visually the best course I've played to date. It's built into the hills which allows for many elevated holes. The views at the top are fantastic and challenging. Yes, its short in yardage but difficult to play. There are many blind shots over hills and around corners, plus sagebrush, trees, thick rough and water. The greens vary in size from very large, to small and narrow, but they were fast and difficult to putt. I should have brought two putters, a lighter putter for the fast greens and a heavy putter for the slow greens. I only have my heavy putter. I played with three guys, the Boise guys, who were part a larger money group. I was asked which course was my favorite, and prior to playing this course, I didn't have one. Whenever I think about the places that I've gone, it's the people that I remember. We can all relate to the challenges of golf and tend to be our true selfs on the golf course. Today was no different, a lot of laughs, frustration and camaraderie. I think one of the best moments we had was when one of the Boise guys drove the green on a par 4 and 4-putted from about 12 feet. He hit a great drive over trees that blocked the green from our view. We were all happy to see his ball on the green for an eagle putt. We had all struggled with the putts, but we thought he would at least get a birdie, which would help their team score. I know he was disappointed when he 4-putted and we understand, but it was also so funny I asked him if he could replay the hole and do the same thing so that I could record it. We all had a big laugh, and that's the bond that we golfers have. I shot 49 on the front and 45 on the back, with an 8 on a par 3 and par 4, total 94.   
    • I haven't heard a pro credit PB for a win. But this guy credits the PB Pro with the win, implying and sometimes stating that PB helped him.
    • This local rule is used primarily in the UK on links courses where putting from long distances off the green is the norm. IMO it should only be used if chipping over is not a reasonable proposition.
    • (https://thesandtrap.com/forums/topic/94053-win-a-new-cart-from-sun-mountain) https://shop.sunmountain.com/Speed-Cart-GT-20119-detail.html I'd love to win the Speed Cart GT in Navy White Red. I like the patriotic colors.  This cart not only looks great, but it would make life so much easier.  Believe it or not, my current golf cart is actually a "pull cart".  Yes, the old fashioned kind that you just don't see anymore, but I still use it. Thus, I'd love to win a new Speed Cart GT in Navy White Red from @SunMountainGolf and @the_sand_trap.   I thank you, my sore shoulder thanks you, and my aching back thanks you :)
